Seigneurs D’Aiguilhe (or “The Lord of Aiguilhe”) is the second wine of Château d’Aiguilhe, owned by Count Von Neipperg since 1998. The Château is one of the finest and most beautiful vineyards in the Castillon-Côtes de Bordeaux appellation, on the high hillsides of the right bank of the Dordogne.

Combining power and freshness, the wines of Château d’Aiguilhe succeed in expressing the terroir’s strong personality, and show very well after 5 years in bottle.
